I was thinking about parallels with both Thunderbird archiving and the Calendar/Journal plugin as well. I do like the idea of making it easy to exclude the Archive namespace from search.
I archive pages infrequently, the current "Move Page" seems sufficient for me to park them in my Archive namespace. I can imagine when archiving a page Foo (or part of a page?) to an existing Archive:Foo, to get the option to append it to the current Archive:Foo -- not sure if that is what you mean with 'move it to the existing "Archive:Foo"'? And then with an optional timestamp inserted before it? "Archived on 2015-09-14:". Maybe Vlastimil's suggestion may work the other way around when archiving the page Foo, similar to what Brian suggested but using existing page structures. first time: create Archive:Foo second time: create Archive:Foo:2015, perhaps move the first version to Archive:Foo:2014 Although it starts to feel like a versioning plugin... ~~Rolf.
